On this brand-new trip we’ll circumnavigate Three-Fingered Jack, an extinct shield volcano in the Mt. Jefferson Wilderness. As we pass basalt formations and glacial pools, we’ll discover firsthand how fire and ice have shaped the landscape of the western Cascades. In camp we’ll practice knot-tying and backcountry navigation. On the final day of the trip, we’ll descend to the McKenzie River for a day of rafting with High Country Expeditions!
